You are the smartest person I know

[Cache – #24]

I’m very pleased to report that I receive scores of positive comments on my blog each week.  Like this one, from someone by the name of “worker jeans”:

“Greetings. I absolutely did some trap surfing and inaugurate this blog. I indisputable sooner than personality of this blog restore a record up and it is actually incredible.I indubitably genuinely derive pleasure your website.Perfectly, the chunk of posting is in oath the very finest on this genuinely quality allowing subject.”

To which my response was:  “Huh???”

Then I got this one:

“I wanted to check up and allow you to know how considerably I treasured discovering your blog today. I will think it a real honor to do things at my workplace and be able to make use of the tips discussed on your web page and also share in visitors’ feedback like this. Should a position spirited guest writer become on offer at your end, you should let me know.”

To which my response was:  “Rats.  My readers are illiterate.”

Thankfully, I realized that my readers are not necessarily illiterate (certainly not you!), but that (like many blogs) my blog receives alot of spam.  Spammers (all of whom are definitely illiterate) send out masses of exceedingly complimentary comments to blogs, hoping to flatter bloggers like me into publishing them.  The spammers attach their web addresses to their comments.  If I was gullible enough to publish those comments, the web addresses would also be published – increasing the number of links the spammers have in cyberspace to their websites, thereby improving their search engine rankings.

At least I think that’s what they’re trying to do.

More raves – this one from “cybermagnetik”:

“What a great web log. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.”

And one from “penis enlargement”:

“Im speechless. This is a superb blog and very enticing too. Great work! Thats not in point of fact so much coming from an amateur publisher like me, however its all I may say after diving into your posts. Nice grammar and vocabulary. No longer like other blogs. You really recognize what you?re speaking approximately too. So much that you just made me want to explore more. Your weblog has grow to be a stepping stone for me, my friend.”

Sadly, I must have done something to disappoint Mr. (or Mrs.) penis enlargement.  In a later comment, he/she had something quite different to say:

“How is it that just anybody can publish a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said anything extremely impressive more like youve painted a quite picture about an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here. But do you really think that you can get away with adding some quite pictures and not really say anything?”

As you can appreciate, I was utterly stumped on how to respond to such articulate criticism.  And so I decided to simply plagiarize a comment received from “payday online”:

“Excellent job toward the post. Clearly sounds better than the recent few. Keep on it high.”
